Sure.  I just wanted to know whether it's safe for sgml-mode
to treat <foo/> in the same way as xml-mode does.
I know that tags can use something else than < and >, but sgml-mode
doesn't try to handle those cases.
I.e. my question didn't have much to do with the SGML definition
but more with the way SGML is usually used.
